A word used commonly by girls, ranging in the age groups of 13-16 and Drake. It's origins came from a Jew named Drake. In his song "The Motto" he says "You only like once that's the motto n!gga YOLO" It's the 2012 version of swagbecause according to hippy posers, it's too mainstream. Yolo means "You only live once" but is usually used for girls doing the duck face or doing weird shit.

Stands for "You only live once". It's used as an excuse to be able to do bad things like drugs and kill people. It is super popular in California right now, kids in elementary school like to draw a giant "YOLO" on a piece of paper and put it on the front of their binder to use as a "cool" cover. It is considered to be not 100% bad, it also can mean that you only live once so try to make the most out of this life, and do GOOD things.
Dereck: Hey hottie you wanna smoke a cigarette?

Alice:No! I don't take these kind of offers from guys. I don't smoke, so don't pressure me like that.
Dave: Yolo. How about trying one?

Alice: I'm going to report you for peer pressure and harassment.
Dereck: Ya ok. Fine. But I really recommend cocaine and marijuana!
Alice: Leave me alone. Go away. You guys aren't very cool.

"You only live once" the phrase coined by Drake in his song, The Motto. This is used by people who need an excuse to do really dumb stuff and then justify it by daring to be different. People gave up that right when they adapted "yolo" into their vocabulary. Yolo is the ultimate definition of no originality. It would have been good if no one did stupid stuff.
Guy#1 Its 4/20 I am gonna get wasted and faded tonight! Because YOLO !

Guy#2 Wow...your pretty lame. You gave up your individuality you fucking follow. Yolo I guess...

Yolo doesn't mean having sex, it doesn't mean doing drugs, it doesn't mean anything else that is considered uncivilized.

Yolo is doing something that really matters in your life, something that will actually make you a somebody, something that will change your life.

Life is shorter than we think, don't waste it.
You only live once. ;)
Yolo, don't be stupid. Do something in you life.
